Absolutely amazing!

I absolutely LOVED this dress! The material was lovely and I got so many compliments. Unlike others, I actually had no problem getting the ruffles along the collar to stand up using my steamer at home. The dress fit like a glove, and looked so polished and chic. It was the perfect conservative dress (wore it to a friend's black tie company party) that still had a whimsical touch. I was so sad to send it back. Will definitely rent again! FYI: I usually wear an 8, and knowing Kate Spade can run large, I ordered a 6 as a back-up size -- which is the one I ended up wearing.

So Pretty!

I ordered this as a back up dress, and ended up wearing the first choice. I almost wore it the next day on a flight just to wear it! It has lots of hooks and snaps to make sure the wrap part stays closed and you stay covered.

Cute and Flattering

I wore this dress to my baby shower (at 7 months pregnant). I usually wear a 6 but ordered an 8 and it was perfect. The cut of the dress made it easy to wrap above my belly and the (strategically placed!) snaps allow this dress to hug and hide in all the right places. This dress is perfect for anyone with a large bust.

Classy and fun!

I LOVED this dress! It was very classy and sophisticated looking and I added color with bright shoes and earrings to bring out a little more of my personality. I had recently lost weight so I wasn't sure about the size. The 8 seemed a little big and I tried the 6 just to see if it was even possible (I previously wore a 12 or 14) and the 6 looked great but was a little snug around the bust.

Great full wrap dress that was easy and comfortable to wear for a full day of work.

Wore this dress for a conference at my work. Formal dress wasn't required, but a friend and I decided to dress up anyway :-) The dress had obviously been worn a few times (my friend's was brand new with the tag still on), but it looked and felt great. It's a full wrap, so just be prepared for that. I wore the dress for about 10 hours (full day of work and dinner after), and it was comfortable the entire time. Went with the 6, though I'm usually an 8. The 8 just felt a little bulky and I got the 6 to work. It'd be a great dress to wear if you need something that will last all day or all night. Not a show stopper, but it fit nicely and made me feel great.

Comfortable and classic.

Pros: This dress will fit almost any body type and has plenty of room at the hips and bust. It is classic and can be dressed up or down. It was very comfortable and the wrap was very well secured. Cons: Dress looked a little worn and the collar did not stay raised like on the model. It was a little long for a petite person as well. The dress runs on the large size. I would recommend ordering a size smaller than you normally wear. Overall I liked this dress and it was great for a conservative wedding. It is a safe but classic pick.

Pretty ruffles

I rented this as my backup dress so I didn't end up wearing it. I'm a 2 on top and a 4 on bottom so I thought a size 2 would fit me but I could barely close the snap on the upper ribs. I'm not big-chested so I think the torso itself runs small. The fabric wasn't what I was expecting...it felt "waterproof". Pretty dress though and it looked as if the ruffles would've actually stood up for me unlike other reviewers.

Classy, classy!

I love this Kate Spade dress. The quality and timeless elegance radiate! Other reviews mention this is tight in the bust, I would agree. I went a size up and it fit perfectly through the chest and due to the "wrap-dress" nature, the extra space in the hips was easily hidden.

Classic and chic!

I generally wear a 10 in Kate Spade but the 10 in this dress was just a little too tight -- the 12 was too big but was the better fit of the two. The dress is a bit conservative -- but is classic and chic. Note that there is no real sheen to the fabric, despite what it looks like in the picture.

Awesome bridesmaid dress

I wore this dress as a bridesmaid in a wedding. All the girls had to wear black dresses. I usually wear a 2 to 4, and only the 4 was available. It fit just fine. I had no problem keeping the dress closed and got TONS of compliments. Everyone wanted to know where I got it. Thanks RTR for making everything so easy!

It was my back-up dress, but this size didn't accommodate my shape.

I ordered this in size 10 as my back-up dress, hoping to get another use out of it over the weekend, but the cut didn't work for my full bust -- I would've had to order a couple of sizes up, but then the bottom half may have been too big. The fabric felt nice, though, and the ruffle was sweet.

Elegant

The quality of the material is superior. The dress is structured enough so that it falls perfectly all night and is great because you can dress it up or down. I wore it to a friend's cocktail-attire birthday party and then to a dive bar after and didn't feel too overdressed! The waist hit me a couple of inches above my natural waist making it a bit uncomfortable at the wait clasp, but I am tall (5'9"). I would order a size up for that reason.

I loved this dress but unfortunately was unable to wear it. The top definitely runs small.

I rented this for a charity breakfast. Unfortunately when the dress came the size 4 was to small and came damaged. The lining was longer than the dress. i could have word a take top under it but there was no way to do anything about the lining. They substitutes my size up (6) because they were out of it, for it would have been perfect. I was really disappointed.

Ew.

Tried on both sizes to work for a wedding and found them both to be the opposite of flattering. The flap of the dress made me look pregnant and it just didn't have the wow factor that a solid little black dress usually gives ya. I didn't end up wearing this dress as even my husband said it did nothing for me.

Beautiful, functional dress!

I rented this dress for a formal function at my work. I had to look nice but needed to move (run) around. It was perfect! The cut is great for pear shapes like me. My only complaint is that I couldn't get the collar to stand up like in the picture.

Very cute for church ceremony

I wore this to the church portion of a wedding I went to recently. It fit very nicely, however there's a hook and eye in the center to keep it closed which looked very odd when I used it. I'm a 34C, so if you have a big chest, I would suggest wearing a black tank underneath so you don't need to close it which is what I did. It's a very classy dress and I was pleased with how it looked.

Beautiful, elegant dress

I wore this dress to a black and white winter wedding and it was perfect. It fit true to size and seemed to have little hooks and buttons in all the right places (unlike some wrap dresses that shift and reveal more than you might like to!). It is a very classy dress, one that I would definitely rent again.

I came into NYC from out of town. I had the dress delivered to my in-laws house in the city. I love not having to travel with a dress. Its there and freshly pressed when I arrive. I felt so comfortable and very sophisticated.

I wore this for a holiday party at my in-laws. Felt very flattering but very conservative. The length runs to the knees. Also, I agree with a previous renter for a large bust. I wear a 34DD and had to leave the clip open so obviously I wore a black tank top underneath. It still looked very sophisticated. Also, the collar does not stand up. It lays very flat. But I loved it overall.

Classy dress!

I ordered a 6 and an 8...I originally planned on wearing the 8 but have lost about 8 lbs since ordering the dresses...the 6 fit perfectly! The length was right at the knee which is what I was expecting. I'm a 34C and the clasp at the bust fit well, although there was no room to spare there. I would order this dress again!

great little black dress

This dress is lovely, i highly recommend it if you are looking for a little black dress. I rented it as my backup, but didn't wear it because my other dress was fabulous. But if i ever need a little black dress i will rent this little black dress by Kate Spade again!

no prob with fit

I have big boobs and I did not have a problem with the wrap fit. The only problem is that the clasp doesn't stay shut all the time--which my boo found to be hysterical, so at least someone got something out of it.

Very Flattering & Classy

I normally wear a 4 or 6 in most dresses and I wore a 6 in this dress. I got a lot of compliments! I invested in a good Rowenta steamer for all of my RTR dresses after I used it once on this dress. It is well worth it. It has been my favorite RTR dress so far :)

Great dress!

This dress was excellent! My size varies between a 2 and a 4, and the 2 fit perfectly. The 4 was a bit big for me in the shoulders since I am kind of short. It was the perfect dress for a night wedding, and I'd definitely consider renting it again for another event.

Great first experience with RTR! Hassle-free process from start to finish.

Beautiful, heavy fabric gives the flirty design a more substantive, work-appropriate look. I wore this to the office and was completely comfortable in it for 8+ hours, then happy hour drinks after! Since it's a wrap dress, I had no problem sitting or standing for long periods of time -- also, did NOT get those awful wrinkles/creases that happen when you sit in a dress or a skirt made of lower-quality fabric. The ruffles do lay flat, as mentioned by another reviewer, probably because it ships in the garment bag. Perhaps a little steam and some spray-on starch if you want to give them more shape, but I liked them the way they were out of the bag. I liked this style so much that I rented another Kate Spade dress in the same cut with a different pattern! Highly recommend.

Classic, Comfortable, and Fun!

The dress fit perfectly! It was very flattering and I got many compliments. I was able to dress it down a bit with some wedges and a colorful necklace for the slightly casual wedding. It was black, in great shape, the fabric felt nice, and I was comfortable all night long. I would say that if you have a larger bust, this is probably not the dress for you. It is also good at hiding slightly wider hips (which is what I have) since it is a full wrap.

Once again, everyone loved the dress that I had on!

I rented this dress for a family function. Its a simple black wrap dress with an adorable ruffle. I ordered the size 4 and the size 6 as a backup. There are three forces at work to keep this dress closed properly and this is where I hit a bit of a snag. First there is an oversized snap on the inside to initially secure the dress. On the outside is the tie ribbon and there are two hook and loop closures - one at the waist and one to cover cleavage. On the size 4 the threads that were supposed to be the loops in "hook and loop" were absent. On the size 6 the inside snap was defective and popped open every time you tried to snap it. After trying both dresses, I decided that the inside snap was more important than the hook and loops - as the tie ribbon basically kept the outside secure and the bust line was not that low. The dress looked great and was very comfortable. Once again every one loved my dress and couldn't believe that it was rented!

Nice dress, great experience, will definitely rent from here again!

I thought the dress was lovely, but if you are big busted, its a little restrictive in the chest. I ended up wearing a backup dress I purchased. I did love the rent the runway experience and will definitely be renting from them again!

It wasn't just a basic black dress for a wedding, it had the extra details that made it special!

I had a baby 8 months ago, so this was a great dress to cover up the undesired post baby "areas". Very comfortable and was still able to chase after a 2 year old without having to worry about anything "hanging out".
